  • Prep time 25 minutes
  • Cook time 2 hours
  • Serves 10
  • 500 grams bread flour

In This Recipe
  1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except for the olive oil until a dough is formed. It should be wet and slightly sticky.
  2. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. After the 5 minutes is up, uncover the dough, and wet your hand in water. Give the 2 book folds. Flip it over so the seams are facing down. Let it rest for 10 minutes
  4. After 10 mins are up, give it one more book fold and then let it rest for about 1 ½ - 2 hours or until it has doubled in size.
  5. Once you see that the dough is doubled in size, grab a sheet pan and pour the olive oil in and transfer the dough on to the sheet pan and slowly spread the dough out until the sheet pan is covered by the dough. Use some extra olive oil on your hands to help prevent sticking. Let rest for 30 – 45 minutes or until noticeable puffy.
  6. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees farenheit and once the dough is done puffing up, gently spread on the sauce, sprinkle the cheese on, and top with basil. Bake for 20 minutes.

    I’m always excited to try a new pizza recipe, but alas I don’t own a scale so as good as it looks, this one will slip away.

    I'm sorry to say but this recipe is riddled with errors. Salt is called for twice and the olive oil is referenced in the directions without quantity. I was happy to find a recipe using weighted measurements, however, with the errors I cant trust it will turn out.
